Thirty-one coronavirus patients in Ghana have been discharged after confirming their recovery from the disease.
This was disclosed by the country’s health minister, Kwaku Agyemang, during an interview with journalists today.
161 cases have been recorded so far, with 5 deaths recorded.
Agyemang said the 31 recovered patients will be monitored closely in their respective homes. This is the highest number of patients who have recovered on the continent so far.
“We have conducted some tests and 31 persons out of the total active cases have not shown symptoms,” he said.
“I keep on emphasising that the fatality rate in Ghana is very low so Ghanaians should not be scared. The five persons who have already lost their lives had underlying medical conditions.”
